Despite the 2:1 relative size difference between Earth and Mars, the Martian volcano, Olympus Mons, dwarfs Earth's Mauna Loa, Hawaii volcano. When measured from the ocean floor, Mauna Loa is approximately 10km. high compared to Olympus Mons at 23km. In this animation, a transparent Olympus Mons is juxtaposed over Mauna Loa, allowing the viewer to better see the size differences between these land masses. This animation is match-framed to animations #2864 through #2872. Note: Animation starts with a distant view of Earth and zooms down to Olympus Mons juxtaposed over the Hawaiian Islands.
